06.06.2015 // HERE WITH ME

A show by Camille Ayme and Nelson Bourrec Carter, on view from May 30th to July 5th at Galerie Ygrec, 20 rue Louise Weiss, 75013 Paris.

Here With Me est l’histoire d’une promesse mise à l’épreuve. C’est une chanson de Dido, générique de la série Roswell passée en boucle pendant notre traversée de la ville éponyme. C’est la découverte de la vacuité de l’envers du décor, un road trip déceptif à travers un territoire fictionné.
Here With Me propose une lecture croisée de l'Amérique d'aujourd'hui. Deux regards suivant des trajectoires opposées se rencontrent pour questionner le paysage américain et les mythes qui l’ont construit.
L'Amérique de la mobilité, conquise d'Est en Ouest par le développement des infrastructures routières se frotte à l'Amérique des représentations, dont les créations Californiennes se diffusent, elles, vers l’Est.
Il en résulte des zones hybrides que Camille Ayme et Nelson Bourrec Carter formalisent aussi bien par la performance que par des images fixes et en mouvement, pour poser les bases d'une mythologie personnelle.

Speaking about his Screen Test series Andy Warhol remarked of his fascination for factory associates who could “turn on” and “be their own script”. It was as though Warhol was anticipating the intense self-scripting demanded by today’s neoliberal economy. He saw how the subject would be tested and stretched – both physically and physiologically – and expected to acquire a new set of skills for each interview or engagement. In the present series of videos, made by artists based in London, LA, Athens and Paris, self-scripting is examined by the queer subject. The paradigm – our spectacle society – still exacts specific demands vis-à-vis our own subjectivity and the images that we are exposed to – this in turn has co-opted a certain “gay” subject that is politically disengaged or neutral. If Freud was correct when he said that the ego is a kind of image, then it is possible to assume that it acts as a screen onto which we project certain identities and idealizations. Many of the videos presented here examine this through two different modes – and often conflate them. The first, image as commodity, and the second, image as celebrity. Some are purely concerned with the kind of subjectivity that was performed by Warhol’s subjects. Above all, the videos act to deconstruct and interrogate certain received notions we have as subjects vis-à-vis the screen.
